OCTOBER 15, 1908. 


On the banks of a mill-brook 
two children were sitting one 
evening playing and rejoicing in 
the pretty flowers and grasses 
blossoming along the run. When 
suddenly the miller's two and a 
half year old, little son slipped 
and fell into the stream. The 
miller's helper, having just come, 
jumped in after it but could not 
catch the child anymore, for the 
rapidly flowing water was bear- 
ing the little fellow with fearful 
speed toward the millwheel. 
There was a painfully anxious 
instant; the little one would in- 
evitably be crushed beneath the 
waterwheel. Then rang .forth 
the Angel us bell and admonished 
all of the "Angel of the Lord." 
At that very instant, the wheel 
stood still. The good miller, at 
the call of the bell had stopped 
the wheel, so that thereby his 
child was saved. And then the 
miller's helper was enabled to 
seize the child, rushing on to its 
death, and return it to its parents. 
But alas, the beautiful custom 
of praying, when, the Angelus 
bells ring out the glorious mes- 
sage, has unfortunately vanish- 
ed in many families. 


An old lady of his flock once 
called upon Dr. Gill with a griev- 
ance. The doctor's neckbands 
were too long for her ideas of 
ministerial humility, and, after a 
long harangue on the sin of 
pride, she intimated that she had 
brought a pair of scissors with 
her, and would be pleased if her 
dear pastor would permit her to 
cut them down to her notions of 

The doctor not only listened 
patiently, but handed over the 
offending white bands to be oper- 
ated upon. When she had cut 
them down to her satisfaction, 
returned the bibs, it was the 
doctor's turn. 

"Now," said he, "you must do 
me a good turn also." 

"Yes, that I will, doctor. What 
can it be?" 

"Well, you have something 
about you which is a deal too 
long and which causes me no end 
of trouble,, and I should like to 
see it shorter." 

"Indeed, dear sir, I will not 
hesitate. What is it? Here are 

the scissors; use them as you 

"Come, then," said the sturdy 
divine; "good sister, put out 
your tongue." 

"I never hear that. It is the "I'm takin* something fer my 
terrific snoring that keeps me appetite — three times a day." 
awake." | "Wot?" 

"Breakfas', dinner an' supper!*' 

One evening an angry com- 
plainant appeared in Cupples' 

"Your bull chased me around 
that field this morning." 

"Did he? Well, I am sorry. 
Hurt ye much?" 

"See here, I've come to tell 
you that you ought to take that 
bull out of the field." 

"It's my field, likewise the 

"I guess you don't know who 
I ani?" 

"Well, no, I dunno's I do." 

"I am the Mayor of Scarboro 
and president of the Scarboro 
Taitsville Railroad." 

"Be ye-" asked Jim respect- 
fully. "Well, why didn't ye tell 
that to the bull?" 

By the side of a certain por- 
tion of a suburban railway stands 
a glue factory which sometimes 
gives out a particularly offensive 
smell. ,A' lady who was obliged 
to travel on this line quite often 
always carried with her a bottle 
of lavander salts. One morning 
an old farmer took the seat be- 
side her. As the train neared 
the factory the lady opened her 
bottle of salts. Soon the whole 
car was filled with the horrible 
odor of the glue. The farmer 
put up with it as long as he could, 
then shouted. "Madam, would 
you mind puttin' the cork in that 
'ere bottle. 


Walking through a street the 
other day, I was greatly amused 
at two little bo'ys who were evi- 
dently playing school, as they 
sat on the doorstep. I heard 
one of them say: "Now, if you 
take two 'from one it leaves one, 
and if you take one from two it 
leaves two." 

I laughingly offered the boy a 
shilling if he could prove that 

The boy, nothing abashed^ 
eagerly accepted my offer, and 
led me into the house where the 
boy's mother sat nursing twins. 

The boy at once said: "Now, 
sir, if I take mother away from 
the twins, I shall take one from 
two and two will remain; and if 
I take away the twins from 
mother I shall take two from one 
and one will be left." 
■ The boy got the shilling. 

"I wish," complained the guest, 
"you would tell your night 
watchman to keep still. He 
makes such an outrageous racket 
all night I can't sleep." - 

"I will tell him to walk more 
lightly,*' said the landlord gra- 
ciouly; "but you know that he 
must walk round at regular in- 

"Oh, it isn't his walking that 
disturbs me," replied the guest; 

A Lrsson Well Learned. 

The following story is told of 
Elihu Root, Secretary of State 
at Washington, and his office-boy. 
Said Mr. Root to the lad one day: 

"Who has taken my waste-pa- 
per basket?" 

"Mr. Riley." said the boy. 
"And who is Mr. Riley?" asked 
Mr. Root. 

"The caretaker, sir." 

"James, who opened that win- 
dow?" Mr, Root asked an hour 

"Mr. Lantz, sir." 

"And who is Mr. Lantz?". 

"The window-cleaner, sir." 

Mr. Root turned and looked at 
the boy. 

"James," he said, "we call men 
by their first names here. We 
don't mister' them in this office. 
Do you understand?" 

"Yes, sir.'" 

Ten minutes afterwards the 
door opened, and the shrill voice 
of James was heard:^- 

"There's a man as wants to 
see you, Elihu." 

A Father going into his sta- 
ble one day found his little 
son. with a slate and pencil in his 
hand, astride on one of the horses. 

"Why, Hariw," he exclaimed, 
"what are you doing*'" 

"Writing a composition," was 
the reply. 

"Well, why don't you write in 
the house?" 

"Because," answered the little 
fellow, "the master told me to 
write a composition on a horse.'' 

Two young girls were talking 
on a subway car, when one of 
them said: "The awfullest thing 
happened to me yesterday. Bess 
and I came down together on the 
elevator but it was crowded to 
suffication. I was afraid I'd lose 
Bess and so I just grabbed her 
hand and held on for dear life. 
When we were nearly to our de- 
stination — just fancy !— I looked 
down, and it wasn't Bess's hand 
at all, but I was holding that of 
a 1 young man whom I never seen. 
I dropped it you may imagine, 
in an instant saying: 'Oh, I've 
got the wrong hand!' when what 
do you suppose he answered? 
'Why, Miss, you are perfectly 
welcome to. the other if you will 
accept.' " 

Si Sanders went to the shop 
one day to buy eggs. 

"What are eggs today?" 
"Eggs are eggs today, Si," re- 
plied the storekeeper, looking 
quite triumphantly at two or 
three lady customers who hap- 
pened to be in the shop. 

"I'm glad to hear you say so/ 1 
replied Si: ''for the last ones I 
got here were chickens."'
